In the random acceleration process a point particle is accelerated by Gaussian white noise with zero mean. Although several fundamental statistical properties of the motion have been analyzed in detail, the statistics of occupation times is still not well understood. We consider the occupation or residence time $$T_+$$T+ on the positive x axis of a particle which is randomly accelerated on the unbounded x axis for a time t. The first two moments of $$T_+$$T+ were recently derived by Ouandji…

We consider the motion of a randomly accelerated particle in one dimension under stochastic resetting mechanism. Denoting the position and velocity by x and v respectively, we consider two different

Statistics of residence time for Lévy flights in unstable parabolic potentials.

The residence time problem for an arbitrary Markovian process describing nonlinear systems without a steady state and the noise-enhanced stability phenomenon is observed in the system investigated.

Occupation time of a renewal process coupled to a discrete Markov chain

A semi-Markov process is one that changes states in accordance with a Markov chain but takes a random amount of time between changes. We consider the generalisation to semi-Markov processes of the

Record Statistics of Integrated Random Walks and the Random Acceleration Process

We address the theory of records for integrated random walks with finite variance. The long-time continuum limit of these walks is a non-Markov process known as the random acceleration process or the



First Passage of a Randomly Accelerated Particle

In the random acceleration process, a point particle is accelerated according to $\ddot{x}=\eta(t)$, where the right hand side represents Gaussian white noise with zero mean. We begin with the case

Occupation time statistics of the random acceleration model

The random acceleration model is one of the simplest non-Markovian stochastic systems and has been widely studied in connection with applications in physics and mathematics. However, the occupation

Statistics of the occupation time for a random walk in the presence of a moving boundary

We investigate the distribution of the time spent by a random walker to the right of a boundary moving with constant velocity v. For the continuous-time problem (Brownian motion), we provide a simple

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Dynamics of absorption of a randomly accelerated particle

Consider a randomly accelerated particle moving on the half-line x>0 with a boundary condition at x = 0 that respects the scale invariance of the equations of motion under x→λ3x, v→λv, t→λ2t. If the

Exact solution to the mean exit time problem for free inertial processes driven by Gaussian white noise.

The aim in this Letter is to present the exact analytical solution to the mean exit time out of an interval for the displacement of an undamped free particle under the influence of a random acceleration.

Statistical Properties of the Burgers Equation with Brownian Initial Velocity

We study the one-dimensional Burgers equation in the inviscid limit for Brownian initial velocity (i.e. the initial velocity is a two-sided Brownian motion that starts from the origin x=0). We obtain

Time at which the maximum of a random acceleration process is reached

We study the random acceleration model, which is perhaps one of the simplest, yet nontrivial, non-Markov stochastic processes, and is key to many applications. For this non-Markov process, we present

A drop of ink falls from my pen...It comes to earth, I know not when

The authors obtain, for a Brownian particle in a uniform force field, the mean and asymptotic first-passage times as functions of the particle's initial position and velocity, with the recurrence

Absorption of a randomly accelerated particle: gambler's ruin in a different game

We consider a particle which is randomly accelerated by Gaussian white noise on the line 0<x<1, with absorbing boundaries at x = 0,1. Denoting the initial position and velocity of the particle by x0

Persistence and first-passage properties in nonequilibrium systems

In this review, we discuss the persistence and the related first-passage properties in extended many-body nonequilibrium systems. Starting with simple systems with one or few degrees of freedom, such
